Drivers' licence

Hi all

I do not have a drivers' licence here. But I am wondering if I can get one while working in Europe. I have dual citizenship with Germany. Do I have to get it in Germany or whatever country I am working in? Just curious about this. Thanks.

You can get a drivers license in whatever country you are resident in.
Just go through the normal process valid for your country of residence.

If you come to Europe and working in a country here, then you will of course be resident (somewhere). Apply in that place of residence for your drivers license.

Different rules apply for different countries, some countries are easier than others.

It is extremely difficult to be more specific when all we know about you is you are in Canada but thinking of going to "some country" in Europe.

Re: Drivers' licence

Hi All,

I was converting my driver's license to a swiss one but apparently for certain countries you need t make a test.

Has anyone made this test before? Can someone advise me what shall I prepare?

Thanks!

Given your ID, I suggest a lot of practice using your indicators and giving way could be a good idea..
